Differs by lab: What you are asking is for the normal "reference ranges" for these tests. Reference ranges are established by each laboratory based on their testing equipment and vary from lab to lab. There is no universal reference range for these or other lab tests. You would need to ask for the range at the lab where the tests were run.
